Both these manga are incredibly well written pieces of work that handle the struggles of young LGBT+ folks. Love and sex take a backseat, and the relationship of young gay boys with each other, their families, society and even themselves - take the front seat. Extremely well written, both tackle the doubt, fear and humiliation that LGBT people have to face on a daily basis, how you make and break relationships simply because of your sexuality, and how, often, some dreams are never meant to be realized.

Manga: Ranma ½
If you liked
Ranma ½
Manga: Change-De!
...then you might like
Change-De!
The biggest and most obvious similarity between these two titles is the presence of a protagonist who can swap genders. Both protagonists obtain their ability unintentionally, have no control over it (a "trigger" forces the swap to occur), and even try to cure it. We see how their ability effects their everyday lives, including awkward scenarios, misunderstandings, and male characters falling for them. However, there are some notable differences such as the lack of rivals/enemies in Change-De. And perhaps even more notable, the fact one is pornographic while the other is not. Personally, I prefer Ranma. It has much cuter characters, it's funnier (without having to be crude), and it's super long. So this recommendation is mainly intended for the people who read Change-De. But maybe Ranma fans will enjoy the other if they're interested in seeing what an adult version of Takahashi's manga might look like.

Not only are their titles similar, but the male leads in both mangas have similar overconfident personalities. They're also both Tsunderes when it comes to the female leads. The comedy in both is hilarious. Their side characters are memorable and lovable. Both are well-paced, although Takane to Hana is more of a slow-burn since it has longer chapters and has a bit more serious approach to slice-of-life. For a 4-koma, Takane no Hana nara Ochitekoi's plot points don't drag on at all and knows when it needs to be serious while still maintaining its carefree high school setting.

Akatsuki no Yona focuses more on Yona's development as a character, both physically and mentally, while Akagami no Shirayukihime has a bit more focus on the romance of the story. Both focus quite a bit on the running of kingdoms and fantasy-esque politics. They each have different approaches to a similar topic, and reading them alongside each other offers differing perspectives, which is kind of interesting.

Claymore
Both manga are set in a medieval-style dark fantasy world, where the main characters battle demons preying on humans. The world is rather cruel, and both main characters have revenge as their prime motivations in life and display some other similarities, such as both wielding giant swords. There are many depressing moments (especially in Berserk universe, where the world is downright hopeless), yet there are also times when the heartwarming moments shine up. Lots of action, quite a lot of gore and shock factor. Though a matter of personal preference, I am fond of Claymore more than Berserk, as it has an ensemble cast of characters rather than focus on fewer (but admittedly more rounded and comple) characters and because of the fact it has concluded to an ending.

In the long run "Kanojo, Okarishimasu" loses this focus, but how the earlier chapters play out are very reminiscent of the greater scheme of "Oyasumi Punpun".

Both have a pair of a human girl and a mythical/godlike creature/guy as its main characters. They are both manhwas (full colour). They go on an adventure (kind of) to fulfill the main guys goal and along the way they meet new people (most of them are mythical creatures) that help and/or hinder them. Both are adventure and fantasy stories with (complicated) romance, and they take inspiration from mythology. There is an orb that grants powers and is in a way a big focus for many of the characters. Both main guys: -can transform from a mythical creature to a human form -is very old (older than they look) but still act quite childish (but can be serious) -have a goal of "ascending"/leaving but is hesitating because of the main girl -is in their universe extremely good looking and humans can't tell their gender (meaning everyone is attracted to them) -have a guardian/guardians watching over them and trying to make sure they "ascend" A big difference between the main guys is that while Kairak (abide in the wind) doesn't show much emotion at all (he doesn't have any in the beginning) and don't do much, Banya (cheonnyeon kumiho) is very lively and are most of the time over the top angry. Both main girls: -want power to protect themselves/the people around them -are positive most of the time -don't have their parents -don't want to show their feeling for the main guy because they might hinder the guy from reaching his goal (so they feel that they are selfish if they "want the guy") -are pulled into an adventure because of the main guy -are pretty selfless One difference beetween the two main girls is that while Lee So-Yoon (cheonnyeon kumiho) is aware (to an extent) of the supernatural/fantasy things that's going on, Reana (abide in the wind) barley knows anything in the beginning. So-Yoon is special from birth while Reana is an ordinary human in the beginning.

Hazuki Kanon wa Amakunai.
Both... ...are 4-koma comedies in a school setting. ...feature "delinquent" girls as main characters who are simply misunderstood. ...have them coming out of their shell thanks to the help of a friend. ...are cute, heartwarming and funny stories that aren't too long. I liked Hazuki Kanon a lot more, because it felt more focused on comedy and was a bit more over the top. Sotomura-san was kind of tame in comparison, but also more "feel good". I feel like Sotomura-san drags on a little too much in the middle because it overuses the same joke too often, but it is a very cute series nonetheless and worth the read if you like 4-koma comedies.

All Rounder Meguru
Okay. One is about MMA and one is about tennis, but both manga depicts the technical aspects of the sport nicely, and realistically. Both the main characters don't have overwhelming physical or technical abilities, but steadily gets better and tend to win by analyzing the opponent and hitting their weak points. Meguru is a bit darker though, especially with character backstories, as it's a seinen instead of shonen like Baby Steps.

Both are relatively light hearted at the start and get more serious as they progress and feature impressive fight scenes along with good comedic bits. Also both have supernatural beings but of different nature: monsters like werewolves and vampires in RtV and tsukumogami (tools that have acquired a spirit and human form) in Tsugumomo. Ecchi elements are present in both series but in Tsugumomo they are more prominent.

Bartender is a well developed manga, while the other is a one-shot collection, but they both use their theme (for Bartender is the alcohol, in the Anthology - the cigars) to create stories which mostly gravitates towards the human relationships, desires and goals in life.

Doushitemo Furetakunai
This rec is for ch5-6 of Dare ga. Similar plot lines and character developments - a gay uke (with bad rumours surrounding him) and a het seme work in the same office space. The uke is indifferent toward everybody due to his past, but gradually, he warms up to the seme. The manner in which both the mangaka have dealt with this subject is mature and believable, and I encourage you to read the other recommendation.

Both are initially one-sided shoujo-ai/yuri where each girl faces psychological problems of her own. Citrus is bit more sexual (nothing graphic), dramatic, and cliche than Yagate, but still similar. Both mention the secrecy of lesbian relationships and both have one girl trying to help the other through family problems. Almost identical settings as well, student council president and all.

Challengers
Both Challengers and Ouran are both comedy-driven love stories with a similar sense of humor involving some over-the-top characters with some hilarious incidents. Both of these manga series have some drama sprinkled throughout them, but are primarily comedy. The stories aren't all that similar, but the tone is similar enough for me to recommend Ouran for fans of Challengers and vice-versa.

Kiseijuu
Both manga explore the same question - What separates human from monster? Monster does this via a character drama exploring the monster within all of us, as its protagonist chases what he see as the biggest monster of all. While Kiseijuu does this via showing the contrasting differences and hypocritical opinions between humans and the alien parasite, as its central pair continue to grow closer together from a mental state of position.

Manga: Ao no Flag

Ao no Flag
Modern LGBT+ representation which aims towards realism. Ao no Flag has so far been as purely realistic as a high school romance manga can really get, whereas Shimanami Tasogare often mixes magical realism and fantastic visual metaphor into reality to achieve a similar end. In other words, the former focuses on more day-to-day reality, with the latter more on the reality of the characters' emotions for the similar effect of making the characters appear believable. Both take their characters seriously and as a nice bonus both have lovely neat, detailed artwork.
